The Which Plant Where program is a five-year series of research projects that will find out where current favourites are unlikely to thrive under the more extreme climates that Australian cities face. Which Plant Where? learns from past successes, and stress-tests major landscape species to find opportunities for new species and varieties to be planted.
Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) has worked in partnership with RMIT University, CSIRO, and the Clean Air and Urban Landscapes (CAUL) Hub of the National Environmental Science Program to map and analyse vegetation, land use, and urban heat across Melbourne. The project has been supported by implementation partner Melbourne Water. The project used UrbanMonitor – a digital aerial photography monitoring system developed by the CSIRO – to create the first high-resolution map that records the baseline of urban vegetation across Melbourne. This project mapped imagery in 2014 and 2018. The project can precisely measure the area of tree, shrub and grass cover at a land parcel level and track changes in this area over time.
